This meetup group focuses on application development, with emphasis on emerging technologies.

It is geared towards developers and technologists who want to create great apps. To build the next generation of apps we must change: - How we scale apps - How we build and test - Where applications run - How apps communicate - Embrace new ways of thinking Even the definition of what makes an application has changed with Cloud, Mobile and Internet of Things.

Our meetups give you the opportunity to get hands on with new and proven technologies to build applications designed for this new world of Cloud, Web, Mobile, Social and Internet of Things.

Our Meetups typically include a 45-60 min (max) presentation to provide an introduction to technologies and techniques to help overcome the challenges of building next generation apps. This is usually followed by several hours of hands on experience working alongside fellow developers, and meeting with the developers behind the tools. There is often an opportunity to be among the first to experience alpha/beta technologies . We provide access to all the tools including in the cloud environment. Just bring your laptops. Of course, all our meetups are free to attend and no marketing or sales pitches are permitted.
